What are 'I Wills'

'I wills' are all about thinking about how you could make a small change to make a big difference for
someone with Autism.

Think about… in your workplace how could you make a change to make life easier for someone with
Autism, this could be perhaps by raising awareness or making a change to your environment.

  • Think about…. the things that a person with Autism may find difficult or stressful.
  • Think about….triggers and how to relieve stressful situations when they occur (as they will in all
    workplaces!)
  • You will probably find that everyone may benefit from the changes!
